Social Studies Image Perspective Discussion

The students are working on speaking and listening skills. To tie this into our learning on perspectives and cultures, we had a social studies image discussion where students would look at a photo (photos of many things they may not have prior knowledge of) and have a discussion using the following prompts:
1) As you look at this photo, what thoughts are going through your head? Why?
2) How do you compare and contrast with this photo? Why?
3) How do you think you feel if you put yourselves in this person's shoes in the photo? Why?
4) What do you think happened in this photo? Why?

The students did a great job of leading the discussions, paying attention and really thinking critically. For homework, they reflected on the photos and wrote about which one impacted them the most, why it did and what awareness they would like to bring to it.
